Every Sunday (hopefully) I shall be posting a personal post about my life as a primary school teacher. I currently work at a primary school teaching Year 2 (6-7 year olds). My training posts on this subject were really successful and so therapeutic for me, therefore I’ve decided to continue posting on the topic. I will not be naming any children, or the school where I work. If personal posts aren’t your thing then feel free to skip these posts. I won’t mind! Bookish goodness returns as normal Monday-Saturday!
This week has been a bit of an odd one if I’m honest. We’re in the midst of working out staffing in the school (I still don’t know where I am yet!) and in the process of recruiting some new staff. Not many people seem to leave my school (as it is pretty fabulous!) but this year we have a few vacancies. The whispers are very much going around the school which isn’t fun. I just can’t wait to find out where everyone is for September, so I can start to prepare for it and the whispers can stop.
It feels like morale is quite low at the school at the moment which is certainly affecting my mood. I feel like I’ve been quite negative/moany at work at the moment, so this week I’m going to make a concentrated effort to be more positive. Let’s see how that one goes! I’m hoping when the uncertainty becomes certainty for everyone…things will improve.
I’m not looking forward to upcoming SATs next week. We’ll be done by Thursday. I just hate making these 6-7 year olds take tests. Get ready for a SATs moaning post next week hopefully alongside some positivity?
